During the night, they actually transformed into an art installation of hope and light. And trust me the sight was simply AMAZING and I have never seen such a beautiful sight in my life!!!

The buildings have all become so colourful and beautiful!!!

See the beautiful sight I was saying earlier... Marina Bay Singapore had got to be BEST PLACE for NEW YEAR COUNTDOWN in the world!!! (View from Swissotel, The Stamford- 66th floor)

THE SIGNIFICANCE
New year's Eve- A Time for reflection and renewal. A time for sharing our hopes and a time for wishing for a better future.

Water- A source of life and the foundation of many great civilisations, water is also a fengshui symbol of abundance and prosperity.

Place- Located at the mouth of Singapore River, Marina Bay is built on the same grounds where the singapore of today sprung.

Light- A symbolic significance in almost all cultures, light represents goodness, knowledge and hope.


Bringing all these elements together at Marina Bay, the countdown was created as a start of a new tradition unique to Singapore, to celebrate the collective hopes and dreams of all Singaporeans.

Happy New Year!!!

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

The fireworks remind me of the song "Firework" sangs by Katty Perry.


This year we have a 8 minutes long fireworks display!!!
